ABC has released an extended promo for Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. with "New World."
The series has recently been described by Joss Whedon as resembling X-Files in the way they unfold the episodes in that you won't have to watch every one to understand (ala Lost).
The new S.H.I.E.L.D. series debuts Tuesday, September 24th¬†8pm ET on ABC.
Joss¬†Whedon¬†shows¬†us not all heroes are super with "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Fresh from his role in the summer‚Äôs¬†box office¬†smash, Marvel's¬†The Avengers, Agent PhilCoulson¬†(Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide¬†law enforcement¬†organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven‚Äôt been¬†classified¬†yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent¬†Grant¬†Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial¬†artist¬†Agent¬†Melinda¬†May (Ming-Na¬†Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De¬†Caestecker) and Agent¬†Jemma¬†Simmons (ElizabethHenstridge). They‚Äôll be joined by civilian new¬†recruit¬†and¬†computer¬†hacker Skye (Chloe¬†Bennet).
Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual ‚Äď of action, spectacle and world spanning stories.¬†The show¬†will speak to the human¬†condition¬†through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents ‚Äď that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.
Executive¬†Produced and co-written by Joss¬†Whedon, Jed¬†Whedon¬†&¬†Maurissa¬†Tancharoen("Dollhouse," "Dr.Horrible‚Äôs Sing-Along Blog"), Jeffrey Bell ("Angel," "Alias") and¬†JephLoeb¬†("Smallville," "Lost," "Heroes").
